Isn't he cute??? This is another one of the images sent to me by my friend Susan.. You are sooo kind Sue... send you hugs!! :) I loved colouring this cutie, and adding shades to the apples to look as natural as they could get! :) look at that half-biteen apple..quite natural looking don't cha think??? Natural..just like the House Mouse Challenge blog theme this week. Furthermore I used natural sack for matting and also to thread around the tag (tag was naturally cut and made by my hands and not by die-cutting machine :) ) I also threaded the button with a piece of sack wool.. everything natural!! More than that... !! Can't be :))
I hope you like it.. I wanted to go around the base card also stitching with the sewing-machine, but it didn't want to work. Wanted to have a rest.. naturally! Hope you're having a lovely weekend. I'm off for a rest myself now.. cause I'm quite tired!!
Image is coloured with water-colours, Dp K& Co Verdena & Peacock, the dark red tag paper was received from a RAK, so I don't know, sorry. image is matted and distressed with distress ink and with a craft knife (and then with my nails) hehe Rub-on word from K & Co as well.
I had a lovely meeting today, with another crafter and blogger like me. We had quite a long chat, and swappaed some images and stuff. She's the darling from Cardmaking Galore. It was really nice Josianne having met you in person!! Had such a lovely chat! Tata for now!!
Looking forward for your comments on this.. and this comes naturally as well!! :)x
I am a Religous Sister, and have been for the last 21 years. I have always had a love for drawing, collages, and anything to do with art and crafts. Some years back started to draw and paint posters, and cards once in a while. About three years ago I decided to have a go with real cardmaking, and have been hooked since! I also use this hobby to involve kids I take care of, and they love to make cards themseves to the people they love! :)
I think that when you give someone a hand crafted card, you are showing that you really care, and is worth to spend time and money on her/him to make him something unique.. a part of yourself!
Presently my days are full of kids, kids who live in a Children's Home, kids who are so energetic and burst with life.. and I really love each and every one of them. We make each other's day, and they are also so very proud of me and my cards!
